We'll start a little later and hope its a little clearer. There are several bail out options if you've wet your bottoms. Maybe do Montevina first to catch the morning sun. Add more, if the clouds don't pour. If driving to the start from Los Gatos, take US 880 south; exit at the Bear Creek Rd overpass; right on Bear Creek, go over the freeway; right on Old Santa Cruz Hwy; go about 1/4 mile and park in the gravel area on the left. 10-01-2017 10:00:00 10-01-2017 12:00:00 6 ACTC: Our Favorite Kids 40 mi, 5 M , 7200 ft: (Cancelled due to rain) *** IMPROMPTU RIDE FOR STATS CREDIT *** Rain and cold.

(Cancelled due to rain) A ride to protest a current event. By having fun on 2 wheels, we will show off some of our values: saving gas and keeping our air clean. We will meet at Whole Foods Market by SAP Center and ride first to Rosegarden Park and then other places of nature and beauty. As usual, bring your “sorrisi” (smiles) so we can stop for a “spuntino” (snack), and don’t forget to check e-list for last minute details.
